samian; decorated

Description
1 body sherd from a small bowl of a Form 37, Central Gaulish (2001-14-38). An abraded sherd shows a small ovolo over a bead row. The mouldmaker appears to have failed to join up the two ends of his bead row successfully, resulting in a divergent double row over part of the sherd. It is interesting to note that the beads appear to run in a series of short straight lines, suggesting use of a poinçon in the form of a short 'bar' of beads rather than a roulette. Below is a freestyle scene which includes a stag.
